[23/05/2011] Researchers have identified a new protein involved in the development of drug resistance in breast cancer which could be a target for new treatments.Breast Cancer: Identification of a New Protein - Read more

New Way: Breast Cancer Cells Adapt to Environmental Stress

[17/05/2011] An international research team has discovered a new aspect of “metabolic transformation”, the process whereby tumour cells adapt and survive under conditions that would kill normal cells.New Way: Breast Cancer Cells Adapt to Environmental Stress - Read more

Physical Health: Scores Predict Breast Cancer Outcomes

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[07/04/2011] Breast cancer survivors with poor physical health scores had an elevated risk of poorer cancer outcomes, including recurrence and death, according to the results of an observational study.Physical Health: Scores Predict Breast Cancer Outcomes - Read more

New Drug Combination: Breast Cancer Resistance to Herceptin

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[14/03/2011] Breast cancer tumours take numerous paths to resist the targeted drug Herceptin, but a single roadblock at a crucial crossroads may restore a tumour’s vulnerability to treatment, scientists at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center report.New Drug Combination: Breast Cancer Resistance to Herceptin - Read more

Gene Fuelled Transporter: Causing Breast Cancer Cells to Self-destruct

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[28/02/2011] Scientists have shown that they can deliver a gene directly into breast cancer cells causing them to self-destruct, using an innovative, miniscule gene transport system. Gene Fuelled Transporter: Causing Breast Cancer Cells to Self-destruct - Read more

Breast Cancer: Oestrogen Reduces Aggression

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[16/02/2011] A team of researchers has revealed that oestrogen can reduce the risk of breast cancer. Their work shows that oestrogen is capable of reducing the number of breast cancer stem cells, which may explain the lower aggression of the tumour and, as a consequence, the possibility of a better prognosis.

Breast Cancer Therapy: Contribution to Hip Fractures?

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[02/02/2011] A hip fracture is not common in a 54-year-old woman, unless she is a 54-year-old breast cancer survivor, according to a new study. Breast Cancer Therapy: Contribution to Hip Fractures? - Read more

Mechanism Revealed: Protein Related to Aging Holds Breast Cancer Clues

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[28/01/2011] The most common type of breast cancer in older women — estrogen and progesterone receptor (ER/PR) positive breast cancer — has been linked to a protein that fends off aging-related cellular damage.Mechanism Revealed: Protein Related to Aging Holds Breast Cancer Clues - Read more

Under Control: Reactivating Cancer Suppressor Genes

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[19/01/2011] Scientists have brought cancer cells back under normal control — by reactivating their cancer suppressor genes. The discovery could form a powerful new technology platform for the treatment of cancer of the breast and other cancers. Under Control: Reactivating Cancer Suppressor Genes - Read more

Research: Early Detection of Breast Cancer

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[11/01/2011] Using a new, powerful method for rapidly screening molecules associated with disease, proteomics expert Joshua LaBaer and colleagues from ASU's Biodesign Institute have identified a broad panel of 28 early predictors, or biomarkers, that may one day aid in the early diagnosis of breast cancer.
